i know I'm dense..but the regs as to B-1 or B-2 seem pretty clear that such a lawful visitor who has entered lawfully is prohibited from enrolling in a course of study ..67 FR 18062 .
B sort of requires you maintain a residency elsewhere to which you intend to return
Plyler until and unless it is changed applies essentially to persons who entered illegally ? Illegal entrants are entitled to,a free education ...so be it . Something like 10 million B visa applications per year, 1 million F visas of which 100 K are for high school students ...and well over. 10,000 instutions on the approved lists ...and over 700 in my state, PA ......
I don't follow at all...in addition to being a citizen or immigrant there are a whole list of visa status ..including. B visitor. And F and M student.
And post the Patriot Act it reads like a B1 or B2 holder must follow the steps to get an F or M Visa prior to enrolling in educational instution OR leave US and reapply for F or M student visa at local embassy ?
